LAS VEGAS (AP) — Amir Khan won another 140-pound title Saturday night by stopping Zab Judah in the fifth round of their scheduled 12-round fight.
Khan threw a right hand that landed just at the belt line of Judah, who went to the canvas. Judah stayed there on his knees as referee Vic Drakulich counted him out at 2:47 of the fifth round.
Judah acted as if he was surprised to be counted out, but got up and went to his corner as Khan celebrated with his cornermen.
Khan, the former Olympic silver medalist from England, was a 5-1 favorite against Judah, the 33-year-old veteran who also owned one piece of the 140-pound title.
